Mackenzie first joined Freestyle upon completing an entrepreneurial internship in Singapore, and was delighted to find a team back home in Austin whose mission resonated with her own values: connecting people through language. After graduating from the McCombs School of Business with a B.B.A. in Marketing and a double minor in Sociology and Management Information Systems, Mackenzie quickly transitioned from intern to coordinator and now leads the ever-growing Marketing Department as Manager.
Mackenzie’s passion for language and cultures first sparked after a transformative study abroad experience in Salamanca, Spain. Since then, she has been lucky enough to explore various countries and finds that the best part of any travel experience is the opportunity to connect with the local community. In her spare time, Mackenzie enjoys walking any nearby farmer’s market, celebrating life with friends and family, and studying French (with Freestyle, bien sûr!). She is thrilled to be a part of such a dynamic team and looks forward to helping others find meaningful connection through language.
